In the show’s story, humanity has been pushed to live in cities called’Plantations. The adults artificially create children called parasites to fight using mechs known as Franxx. One of the best pilots is a half klaxosaur-blooded girl named Zero Two.

Cosplayer mk_ays transformed into the heroine in December 2019 and stunned with her accurate re-creation. The artist nailed the fighter’s signature flowing pink hair, and piercing blue eyes.

Posing in her military uniform, the cosplay artist looks exactly how fans would imagine the character to look like in real life. The costume is so accurate, it’s almost if the pilot has stepped from outside of the anime.

The Russian artist’s take went viral when she posted a video of her portraying Zero Two. At the time of writing, the clip has over 65k likes as viewers were stunned by how faithful her depiction is.

Early on in the story, Nezuko Kamado is turned into a demon after surviving a brutal attack from a creature. A part of her new powers is the ability to shrink her body. To avoid being seen, the heroine travels in a box that is carried by her brother.
